Abstract Title: 

NRF2011-EDU001-EL001 EduLab Project Scaling-Up Reflections on Using Open Source Physics

Abstract: 

eduLab (MOE, 2012b) is a key programme under the third MasterPlan for ICT in Education (mp3) where teachers with good ideas for an ICT-enhanced lesson or curriculum (learning with computer models through inquiry, example PhET (PhET, 2011) can come together to collaborate. eduLab aims to support teachers to develop, prototype and test-bed their lesson ideas (journey in 2012-2014) while ensuring that the results, in the form of complete lesson packages (see http://edulab.moe.edu.sg/edulab-programmes/existing-projects third project) , are scalable across schools to benefit the wider teaching community. Our models and lessons are downloadable here http://weelookang.blogspot.sg/2013/03/moe-excel-fest-2013-scaling.html We have collaborated with namely Professor Francisco Esquembre, Professor Fu-Kwun Hwang and Wolfgang Christian and created Open Source Computer Models on the topic of 1 Dimensional Collision (Loo Kang Wee, 2012b), Falling Magnet in Coil, Ripple Tank (Duffy, 2010; G. H. Goh et al., 2012; Ong, Ng, Goh, & Wee, 2012; Ong, Ng, Teo, et al., 2012; Loo Kang Wee, Duffy, Aguirregabiria, & Hwang, 2012), Superposition Waves, 2 Mass Gravity, Earth-Moon Gravity, Kepler's Solar System and Geostationary Orbit (J. Goh & Wee, 2011; Loo Kang Wee, 2012a; Loo Kang Wee & Esquembre, 2010; Loo Kang Wee & Goh, 2013) for enriching interactive engagement (Christian & Belloni, 2000; Hake, 1998) previously lacking in our teaching practices, but we argue is essential for deepening learning (L.K. Wee & Lye, 2012) by doing. We hope to share some of the learning points from ideas (researchers Francisco Fu-Kwun and Wolfgang) to practice (teachers in RVHS, YJC, IJC, AJC and SRJC) supported by specialist (ETD), contextualized and made possible through this edulab funding initiative by National Research Fund, managed by National Institute of Education (NIE) and Ministry of Education, Singapore.

Comments from Reviewers: 

With the third MasterPlan for ICT in Education (mp3) as the context, this paper is a praiseworthy collaboration by a community of like-minded and passionate physics educators, locally and abroad to promote the effective use of ICT in physics education in the form of ICT-enhanced lesson or curriculum (learning with computer models through inquiry, example PhET). The eduLab's aim to support teachers to develop, prototype and test-bed teachers' lesson ideas while ensuring that the results, in the form of complete lesson packages are scalable across schools to benefit the wider learning community is a worthy innovation effort to propagate best practices in a systematic and systemic approach.
